After being mired in controversies for a long time, the fourth film in the Housefull franchise Housefull 4 has been wrapped up. Akshay Kumar shared a photo featuring the entire cast of the comedy film and announced the wrap. He tweeted, “While we have called it a ‘wrap’ for #Housefull4, fun never ends..See you all in 2019!”

Supported by an ensemble cast including Kriti Sanon, Riteish Deshmukh, Kriti Kharbanda, Bobby Deol, Pooja Hegde, Chunky Panday, Johnny Lever, Boman Irani and Rana Daggubati, Housefull 4 revolves around the theme of reincarnation. According to the makers, the film follows a non-linear narrative. The flashback sequences have been shot in Rajasthan and the climax was shot in Mumbai. Also, a few portions of the film were filmed in London as well.

Bobby Deol also shared the same photo from the set of the film and wrote, “A journey that saw me reunite with old buddies & make new ones! And finally it’s a wrap for #Housefull4. Looking forward to see you all in 2019.” Bareilly Ki Barfi actor Kriti Sanon thanked Akshay being amazing during the shoot of the film. “Dilliwaalas with their gummy smiles!! 😜😄 It was such a pleasure working with you sir!! Thank you for being so amazing, so chilled, so funny and soooo punjabi! 🤗❤️ @akshaykumar your constant urge to add something new to the scenes to make it better is inspiring! 🙌🏻🤗” she tweeted.

The film saw a couple of replacements during its filming. Nana Patekar was replaced by Rana Daggubatui and the chair of the director was taken by Farhad Samji in the wake of the MeToo movement. Earlier the film was helmed by Sajid Khan who stepped down from the role amid sexual harassment allegations against him.

Housefull 3 was released in 2016 and starred Akshay Kumar and Riteish Deshmukh along with Abhishek Bachchan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Nargis Fakhri and Lisa Haydon. The film did unexpectedly well at the ticket counters and minted over Rs 100 crore.
